Silver Bells and Golden Spurs


Published 2006


"Silver Bells and Golden Spurs is the screen adaptation of an anonymous cowboy poem by the same name, and tells the story of a showdown between two bad guys during the days of the Wild West.

A gunslinger enters a bustling mining town looking for a local bad guy and killer, and finds him drawn up to the bar in a local saloon. After singling him out, the two men exchange threats and make bets on who's the quicker draw. Both men draw and fire, but for the outcome, you must watch the movie!

This production serves Linden Lab as both a proof of concept piece and a marketing tool, and was created in their real-time virtual world called Second Life. Every clip in the timeline is straight capture, and there are no post-production compositing or effects; only basic dissolves, titling and audio effects.

To date, Silver Bells and Golden Spurs is the most aggressive production of a new genre called Machinima: the process and practice of making movies using game engines and metaverse technology. All of the assets for this movie were made in real-time, involving Second Life users from Canada, Scotland, the United States, and Australia. Every character in these scenes represents a real actor somewhere in the world; Second Life does not support autonomous actors, and video output is captured in real-time. This movie was produced the same way motion pictures are, from concept to final cut." -- provided by Eric Call.
